What channel is No. 2 Iowa wrestling at No. 1 Penn State on? How to watch, stream Friday's dual

The Iowa wrestling team's most daunting road trip of the season arrives Friday evening when Tom Brands takes his No. 2 Hawkeyes (12-0, 5-0 Big Ten Conference) into the Bryce Jordan Center against No. 1 Penn State (10-0, 3-0). The dual begins at 7:30 p.m. CT on Big Ten Network.

It will be another sold-out home event for Penn State, which thumped No. 9 Michigan, 30-8, last week in front of 15,975. The last time Iowa wrestled Penn State in State College, 15,998 jammed into Bryce Jordan for a 28-13 Nittany Lions victory.

The Hawkeyes and Nittany Lions have met 10 times since Cael Sanderson was hired at Penn State ahead of the 2009-10 season. They have split those duals, 5-5, entering Friday’s showdown — though Penn State has won three of the last four.

Here's how to watch, stream and listen to Friday's dual.
